VAJRAYOGINI EMPOWERMENT30 MARCH – 31 MARCH 2018For the first time in Australia, Rinpoche will offer this very profound empowerment of Vajrayogini, the great female deity practised in all four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism. She is featured in both the Nyingma and Drikung Kagyu Phowa sadhanas so this empowerment (which usually incurs no specific practice commitment) is recommended for all Phowa practitioners. By donation. (We suggest $AUD120.)
TEACHING ON BUDDHA AMITABHAA Sadhana Recitation of Maha Sukhavati: A Mind Treasure from the Profound Whispered Lineage of the Space Dharma1 APRIL – 3 APRIL 2018Also for the first time in Australia, Rinpoche will offer a detailed explanation of this famous Mind Treasure (Terma) text revealed by the 17th century Terton Mingyur Dorje. Often known simply as “The Long Buddha Amitabha Sadhana”, the text is used for Phowa tsok, 10-Levels Buddha Amitabha, and other practices from both the Nyingma and Kagyu lineages. This rare teaching is particularly valuable for Buddhists from Pure Land traditions and others who have devotion to Buddha Amitabha with the aspiration to achieve rebirth in his Blissful Pure Land of Sukhavati. Following this event, all students are welcome to attend the regular Buddha Amitabha sadhana practices at Rinpoche’s Centre in Waitara, to deepen their understanding. By donation. (We suggest $AUD180.)
IMPORTANT: His Eminence teaches in clear English. Vietnamese translation will be provided throughout the event. Written materials are in both English and Vietnamese.

All Mahamudra and Dzogchen practitioners rely strongly on the personal guidance of their Tsawe (Root) Lama, the Master who actually gave them this most precious of teachings, so do take advantage of this rare opportunity!Interviews will be scheduled during evenings/weekend as well as daytimes.
